Flight Physics Capability Engineer

Airbus Filton

Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2017, it generated revenues of € 67 billion and employed a workforce of around 130,000. Airbus offers the most comprehensive range of passenger airliners from 100 to more than 600 seats. Airbus is also a European leader providing tanker, combat, transport and mission aircraft, as well as Europe's number one space enterprise and the world's second largest space business. In helicopters, Airbus provides the most efficient civil and military rotorcraft solutions worldwide.

Our people work with passion and determination to make the world a more connected, safer and smarter place. Taking pride in our work, we draw on each other's expertise and experience to achieve excellence. Our diversity and teamwork culture propel us to accomplish the extraordinary - on the ground, in the sky and in space.

Description of the job

An opportunity has arisen to join the Flight Physics Capability Team as a Flight Physics Capability Developer in the UK, based at Airbus Filton.
In the context of consolidating and defining new simulation means to enable the future flight physics processes linked to the EG Strategy captured in the Green Book, the job holder will be responsible for the definition, the development, the maintenance and support of a large set of Aerodynamic tools and multi-fidelity Frameworks that will contribute to the out-of-cycle Multi-Disciplinary Design & Optimisation Process.

EGDC department aims to be the world-class leader in flight physics capabilities. We play an essential role in providing disruptive and/or fit-for-purpose digital solutions.
Through our solutions we continuously contribute to the design, development and through-life support of highly competitive and innovative aircraft.
